Make Me a Supermodel, the new Bravo reality series from the minds that brought us Project Runway and Top Chef, is bringing viewer participation to a new level. The reality show, which will be hosted by super models Niki Taylor and Tyson Beckford, is a reality competition program in which aspiring models attempt to launch a super star career. The series doesn’t premiere January 2008, but the competition begins now. Internet users can head over to BravoTV.com and vote for who they think should be the final two Make Me a Supermodel contestants. There are six finalists for the two spots, three girls and three guys, and people are allowed to vote for one girl and one guy. The voting period has already begun and the polls will close on November 26 and 4PM ET.
Here’s a brief look at the six Make Me a Supermodel hopefuls:
